Abstract

A quick connector assembly has a female housing with a hair pin style retaining clip to retain a beaded conduit therein. The female housing includes a pair of slots forming ramped surfaces on the housing to enable legs of the retainer to be transversely positioned within the axial bore of the female housing to retain male fittings therein.

Description

BACKGROUND AND SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to quick connector assemblies and, more particularly, to quick connector assemblies having female housings with ramped surfaces adapted to receive hair pin type retaining pins to retain male fittings within the housings.

In manufacturing fields, such as automotive, trucks, or the like, it is customary to employ quick disconnect devices to connect conduits or the like together. While conduits, such as piping, can be connected in a variety of ways, which include threaded couplings for efficient assembly of the mechanisms, it is desirable to have available a fluid coupling which can be attached very expeditiously but which at the same time, once attached, is substantially fail safe. Various types of couplings have been provided to be utilized in connecting of conduits.

These couplings are illustrated by the following U.S. patents. They are U.S. Pat. Nos. 951,283 issued to P. Krischer on Mar. 8, 1910; 2,021,241 issued to A. W.

Cooke on Aug. 27, 1985; 4,570,980 issued to S. H. Goward on Feb. 18, 1986; 4,772,052 issued to E. W. Morain on Sept. 20, 1988.

In several of the above patents, the retaining clip is positioned onto the housing after the male conduit has been inserted. Thus, the retainer functions as a staple or the like to retain the conduits together.

While the above patents appear to perform satisfactorily for their intended purpose, designers are always striving to improve the field.

The present invention provides the art with a hair pin style retainer which has flexible legs enabling spreading of the retainer legs to provide for insertion and removal of the male conduits. The legs also retain the male conduits within the housing after insertion. The retainer remains on the housing at all times during insertion and removal of the male conduits. Also, the present invention provides the art with a female housing having a pair of slots defining ramped surfaces in the housing wall. The ramped surfaces enable the hair pin style retainer to move or slide along the ramped surfaces, within the slots, to enable insertion and removal of the male conduit.

From the following detailed description and preferred embodiment of the present invention, other objects and advantages of the present invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Turning to the figures, particularly FIG. 1, a quick connector assembly is illustrated and designated with the reference numeral 10. The assembly 10 includes a female housing 12 coupled with a conduit 14, a retaining member 16, and a second conduit 18 having a male fitting end 20 adapted to be connected within the female housing 12.

The housing 12 has an overall cylindrical shape wall 28. The female housing wall 28 includes a head portion 30, a body portion 32 and a tail 34. An axial bore 36 is coincident with the housing longitudinal axis 38 through the entire length of the housing 12. The housing wall 28 has an exterior diameter at the head portion 30 less than the exterior diameter at the body portion 32 but larger than the diameter of the tail portion 34 as seen in FIGS. 3-5A. The housing 12 is a unitary structure molded preferably from a desired plastic material.

A pair of opposing slots 42 and 44 are formed in the housing wall 28 between the head 30 and body 32. The slots 42 and 44 extend through the wall 28 and into the axial bore 36. The slots 42 and 44 define ramped surfaces 46, 48, 50 and 52 on the head 30 and the body 32, respectively. The ramped surfaces 46, 48, 50, and 52 are at an acute angle with respect to the longitudinal axis 38. The ramped surfaces 46 and 50, and 48 and 52 are substantially parallel to one another and are at acute angles with respect to the longitudinal axis 38. The angles are generally between 20° to 70° providing for movement of the legs along the surfaces The ramped surfaces 50 and 52 enable the retainer 16 to move thereon as will be explained herein.

The body 32 generally includes O-rings 54 an 56 and gasket material 58 and 60 to seal the male fitting end 20 within the female housing 12 as seen in FIGS. 5 and 5A. The tail 34 enables the conduit 14 to be secured thereon. Also, clamps (not shown) may be positioned around the conduit 14 at the tail 34 to enhance the connection of the conduit 14 to the housing 12.

The retainer 16 is of a hair pin style. The retainer 16 is generally manufactured from a spring material including a head 70 and legs 72 and 74. The head 70 may be comprised of one or more loops having arcuate portions 76 and straight portions 78 which are substantially perpendicular to the legs 72 and 74 as shown in FIG. 6 and 6A. The legs extend from the head portion 70 and terminate with feet 80 and 82 The feet 80 and 82 are angled with respect to the legs 72 and 74.

The retaining member 16 is inserted into the slots 42 and 44 such that legs 72 and 74 are positioned transversely with respect to the longitudinal axis 38 and traverse the axial bore 36, as seen in FIG. 2. When the male fitting end 20 is inserted into the axial bore 36, the legs 72 and 74 begin to spread as seen in phantom in FIG. 2 and in FIGS. 4A and 5A. As the legs 72 and 74 spread, they rotate about the head 70 as seen in phantom in FIG. 2. As the bead 21 on the male member approaches the legs 72 and 74, the legs spread further apart. As the legs spread and rotate they also move upward along the ramped surfaces 50 and 52 as illustrated in FIGS. 4A and 5A. Generally, the legs 72 and 74 do not move at an equal pace and the legs are not in the same plane which would be perpendicular to the longitudinal axis as illustrated in FIG. 5A. The legs continue to move upward along the ramped surfaces 50 and 52 until the bead 21 passes between the legs 72 and 74. After the bead 21 passes through the legs 72 and 74, the legs 72 and 74 resiliently spring back to their original position behind the bead 21 to retain the male fitting end 20 within the female housing 12 as seen in phantom in FIG. 4.

The feet 80 and 82 may be moved manually to maneuver the legs 72 and 74 along the surfaces 50 and 52. As the feet 80 and 82 are moved, the legs slide along the surfaces 50 and 52 until the legs are spread enough to enable the male fitting end 20 to be removed from the female housing 12.

While the above detailed description fulfills the preferred embodiment of the present invention, it will be understood that the present invention is susceptible to modification, variation, and alteration without deviating from the scope and fair meaning of the subjoined claims.
